| Updated: March 11, 2024 21:10

The holy month of Ramadan is set to begin in India on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, as the moon has been sighted in various parts of the country, according to the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind.

The sighting was confirmed during a meeting of the Ruyat-e-Hilal Committee held on Monday at 1, Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg, New Delhi. The meeting was presided over by Maulana Niaz Ahmed Farooqui, the secretary of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind.

The Muslim organisation issued a statement verifying the sighting of the moon in several regions across the country. “Thus, it is declared that the first Ramzan falls on Tuesday, March 12, 2024,” the statement read.

Mufti Mukarram Ahmad, the Imam of Fatehpuri Masjid, also confirmed that the moon had been sighted and that fasts would commence from Tuesday. He extended his greetings to the people on this occasion and noted that the moon was clearly visible from the mosque and in many parts of the country.

The sighting of the crescent moon marks the beginning of the holy month of Ramzan, a time eagerly awaited by millions of Muslims worldwide. During Ramzan, Muslims observe a fast from dawn to dusk, beginning with the pre-dawn meal ‘sehri’ and breaking their fast at sunset with ‘iftar’. The end of this sacred month is celebrated with the festival of Eid ul Fitr.
